Beachbody and Ilana Muhlstein created 2B Mindset as a way to lose weight and overcome emotional eating. She simplifies dieting by not counting calories or skipping foods you love. Best of all? This plan allows you to reach your goal weight and keep the weight off.
What is 2B Mindset?
The 2B Mindset is a nutrition program that teaches you 4 fundamentals to losing weight. Illana, the registered dietician behind the plan, uses your plate and a specific food list to help you lose weight and see results quickly.
While the food list is very helpful, no food is completely off limits. She suggests you track everything you eat in your 2B Mindset Journal to help you see where you’re doing great and where you could improve.
The 2B Mindset uses a plate diagram like the one below to help you know what to eat and when.
Each meal and snack include a different portion, but it gets to be second nature after a few weeks.
You’ll be eating a lot of veggies! You also will see complex carbs (called FFCs on the plan) and lean proteins on her list of favorite foods.
We loved how simple the plan was to follow and that no food is off limits!
You’re going to learn how to overcome cravings, grocery shop, order takeout, make this work at restaurants and while traveling! So it’s really building a lifestyle of healthy eating versus a one-and-done diet.
It’s flexible enough to make it work for your life, but it also has enough structure to help you see results quickly.
What does FFC mean in 2B Mindset?
It’s just an acronym for Fiber-Filled Carbohydrates (F.F.C).
2B Mindset Explained in Under 2 Minutes
2B Mindset can help you if you:
- failed with diets in the past.
- feel overwhelmed with all the fad diets & programs out there.
- struggle with junk-food cravings.
- want to lose weight but hate to work out or are unable to exercise
- workout but struggle to follow a meal plan with it
- want a plan without strict rules like cutting food groups or counting calories
- get frustrated by yo-yo dieting
- crave freedom and control in your diet
The 2B Mindset makes weight loss simple, enjoyable & sustainable.
Is this like the 21 Day Fix?
No, this meal plan isn’t like the 21 Day Fix in that fact that it doesn’t use containers. Both plans have you eating healthy foods, but we felt like this was a better long-term approach to healthy eating.
How do 2B Mindset and Portion Fix Differ?
|External Control (containers)||Internal Controls (mindset)|
|Set Amounts to Eat Daily||Flexible|
|Specific Portion Guidelines||General Behavioral Guidelines|
|Portioned eating||Volume eating|

So if you’re struggling to diet and still enjoy your favorite foods, this plan is for you!
Can you 2B Mindset if you don’t like vegetables?
To be honest, it’s going to be tough to follow if you don’t like veggies!
I’m not a huge veggie eater so this change was a hard one for me. If you’re open to a change, it’s doable though because she really gives you a good amount of recipes and tips to try.
Our Group Loved These Recipes Included in 2B:

What do you eat on the 2B Mindset?

- Tuna Salad with a Slaw Mix & Asian Vinaigrette Plus an Apple

Unlike some reviews, I’ve followed this program personally!
I want to start this review a little differently than normal because there are so many “reviews” with no personal story out there.
I followed 2B Mindset and used the workout supplements the whole time. I’ve lost 12lbs and can see a big change!
More 2B Mindset Results
We’ve hosted two 4-week groups for 2B Mindset, and their results have blown us away both times! Even those not working out are seeing big drops on the scale!
